the importance of the american economy in terms of driving china's economy and other economies in the world. their importance is driving other economies in the region and elsewhere. it is a principle reason why we should invest in here. it is a top priority at a level unlike any before. you're sitting here in the heart of the most open economy in the world. the u.s. is the largest recipient of direct investment. manufacturing was mentioned. we have about 5.6 million total good paying american jobs contribute in close to when chilean dollars to our economy -- $1 trillion to our economy that comes from foreign direct investment. that that is why manufacturing, or energy companies for many of countries are setting up shop here in the united states every day. our trade agreements are built on the premise and shared prosperity, we have deals that go both ways. those create good paying jobs all over the world. they offer american firms unprecedented global access. it also opens our doors and our markets to foreign firms. this is the direction of the world. this is the way the world is going to mo
we look at the housing market and we look at growth and the economy and jobs, there is a direct linkage. i memo said today that we were going to talk about and ask you questions so that we could share and learn more about the recent fha announcement about the mmi f. so something i read them i would like you to answer for me if this is factual in truth because in hearing, i think we have an obligation to the people who are here and to america to speak the facts and the truth and then look at how we dissect that to come to some and resolve. so what i have before me, it says that the federal credit reform act of 1990, or the fc are a, requires that at the end of each fiscal year, and is part statement,ing annual every agency including the fha must have sufficient reserve to cover all anticipated loss. for fha this requirement means must havem f i sufficient reserves to cover the amount that would be needed to meet all expected claims over the next 30 years. tomorrowoses its doors and has no new business to offset those claims, such an bailout.tion is not a would you agree to that s
in america. it speaks to my top priority as president, growing our economy, creating good jobs, strengthening security and opportunity for the middle class. over the past three and a half years, our businesses have created over 7.5 million new jobs. this week, the treasury confirmed that since i took office we have cut our deficit by more than half. but we have more work to do. we need to grow and create more good jobs faster. that is my driving focus, and i will go anywhere and do anything to make it happen. that has to be washington's driving focus as well. i know what you often hear out of washington can sadly charley brown's teacher, a jumble of unfocused noise out of touch with the things you care about. today i want to cut through that noise and talk plainly about what we should do right now to keep growing this economy and creating new jobs. it begins by ending what has done more than anything else to undermine our economy over the past few years, the constant cycle of manufactured crises and self-inflicted wounds. i was glad to hear the republican leaders in the senate say they will n
. it is that kind of openness that drives american economy and foreign economies and moves all of us forward at the same time. needless to say, we have our own interest here. it is no secret that our president's number one by yorty -- priority is creating strong middle class jobs here at home. he also knows that the best way to do that is to strengthen our international ties and foster broad growth around the world. we know that demoting inclusive inclusive growth and strengthening the rule of law and other countries also helps us to create new markets for our businesses and jobs for workers. when we help other nations to develop their own ability to govern and meet the aspirations of the booming population, we foster stable societies and everybody here knows stability is pretty important with respect to investment decisions and prognosis. we do what we do because we have always known that we are all in this together. we are all connected in this. that is another reason why the united states the believe is the best place to invest. no other country where you can be confident that your invest
gdp compared to other advanced economies. our code is also full of special interest tax breaks and loopholes while hurting others that are investing in the united states. we can do better. and we can do this by broadening the tax base and lowering tax rates in a way that doesn't add a dime to the federal deficit. the president put forward the details of his tax reform and pleadmead clear his commitment -- and has made clear his commitment to business tax reform paired with an infrastructure package paid for with one-time revenue. we have a real opportunity ahead to seize the tax reform and establish a simpler, fairer and more competitive tax reform in the yeats. -- years. they share much in common with the approach the president has put forward. there's no reason we can't start with the substantial policy areas we agree on and come together to find common ground. in addition to reforming our tax system, we must finish the work of creating new trade agreements that are free and fair. they must open up markets for america's businesses and must add to the millions of american jobs
-term solution to our deficits that is balanced and restores certainty to our economy. what we do not need is more gimmicks and partisan games. like we will have today, frankly. we are going to have a vote on the resolution, which is disapproving of the raising of the debt limit. everybody knows that's not a real vote, and almost everybody on this floor knows that if we pursued that policy it would be damaging to america, to the military that was just brought up, and to our nation and every republican leader has said that not increasing the debt limit is an alternative that ought to be pursued. yet, we have this vote. that resolution has already been rejected by the senate and stands no chance of surviving a presidential veto. it is, frankly, simply political cover and a waste of our time. keys to any budget solution, mr. speaker, must be compromise and a seriousness of purpose. americans want to see that seriousness, and they want to see much, much, much less of the political gamesmanship. some of which we'll practice today, unfortunately. republicans and democrats, i believe, in looking

will be suffering the most and the worst. this debt drags on our economy today. it is a drag in economic growth for our economy today. right now we are not doing anything about it. can n't keep kicking the down the road anymore. we have to get a handle on the debt, and we have to get a hanled the on it now. from my speaker expective, just taking more from the american public is not the answer. we look at this conference as an argument if taxes, we're not to get anywhere. the way to raise revenue, from our perspective, is to grow the economy, to get people back to work. we need to write a tax code that oesn't stifle the economy. house republicans and democrats are doing -- are working together to do just that. focus our energy on a better budget. our goal is to grow family budgets . to do that, we need to get this economy growing. over 90 million americans are on the sidelines. many people have not had a job in six months. household income is down significantly. e may disagree as to why the economy isn't growing, but i hope we agree that the status quo is not acceptable. let's work together to p
terribly illustrative. a lot ofen doing a studying of the united states economy going back to revolutionary times. there were a lot of periods where the economy was very volatile. you were so many booms and busts in the 19th century and so on. the last 25 years, from 1890 to from was very sehgal -- 1990 22 thousand seven, was very stable. 1990 to 2007 was very stable. if you never owned a house you might go from a time when you live alone in a single apartment to where you have to have a roommate back to where you can afford a single apartment and back and forth depending on what is.economy if people lose that resiliency they feel there is no opportunities to get ahead. that is basically what i want to say. journal.comnational -- but he railed along the way -- schedule got derailed on long the way. the senate would tackle a number of nominations. the employee nondiscrimination act and drug legislation -- one clarification, the houses back next week. they will return after the veterans day holiday. sandy is joining us from phoenix, arizona. you say this is not the land of opportunity. why is

small grow the economy. >> mr. speaker, new research shows that his government is trapping low earning aspirant parents on benefits. andping parents working costing the taxpayer. isn't it time for a rethink? thee know labor are against benefit cap. labor wants unlimited benefits for families. they're no longer the labour party, they are the welfare party and it is very clear from the question that they are. we think it is right to cap benefits because no family can earn more out of work than they can earn in work. the early evidence is showing that this is encouraging people to look for work area for a party that believes in hard- working people, that is good news, presumably for the welfare party that is bad news. >> the prime minister will be ofre of the business model the not-for-profit company responsible to its consumers and not turn shareholders. does a prime minister agree that such a company in the energy supply sector would introduce real competition? competition in the energy sector, whether that comes from private businesses are cooperative businesses or as he says charitabl
